A survey of Hostomedia

We, at, have chosen 'Hostomedia' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we presume that this concise assessment of 'Hostomedia' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Hostomedia' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hostomedia' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting services furnished by 'Hostomedia'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting packages furnished by 'Hostomedia' are powered by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price really low (since plenty of clients are located on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web page hosting account that cannot accommodate your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence expands. Thus, you save cash that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still new. Every webspace hosting package furnished by 'Hostomedia' contains an online website builder and over forty popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Hostomedia' furnishes shared web page hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Hostomedia' are quite well furnished and come at a very low price (beginning from $3.00 for the Standard package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Hostomedia' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to handling a conventional shared site hosting account via a CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a fee-free site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, count this as a tiny defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and system resources than a VPS server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Hostomedia' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Hostomedia' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'Hostomedia' delivers an array of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the web servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'Hostomedia's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Hostomedia' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every hosting server provides free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Hostomedia' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Hostomedia' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
